“Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments.” Rose Kennedy, American philanthropist
Have you ever heard ‘Time is on my side’ or ‘Time is only an illusion – a construct created by human beings so that we can make sense of things’? I began thinking about time since Sunday March 12th is when many parts of the country will be turning their clocks ahead one hour! It’s nice that we, in Arizona, don’t have to adjust our clocks at all. It makes it easier while here and sometimes challenging if communicating with others in different parts of the country. We have family members on both coasts in the U.S. and I’m always thinking about the time difference when trying to connect with them. How about you?
I’ve also begun to think about life cycles and realize that it is the moments within the cycle or journey that are the most important. For example, we’ve just experienced March’s full moon also known as the Lenten or Worm moon. This full moon represents a transition from winter to spring. During this transitional time it’s perfect to reflect on the ‘moments’ that have made an impact on your life during this cycle. One of the things I’ve been grateful for is my walks where I truly acknowledge the blessings in my life. It’s a meditative and healing time. I hear the symphony of nature, smell the richness of the desert, see the natural beauty of the landscape, and I can feel the whispers of the breeze gently touching my skin. I feel so blessed for my strength, flexibility, and mobility while walking. How lucky am I?
The English writer, J.R.R. Tolkien has said “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” Why not decide to feel grateful? I know that some of you may feel like there isn’t enough time to do it. Isn’t the challenge really deciding what you will prioritize and value with the time you have? The energy right now is inviting you to bring more balance into your life while nourishing both body and spirit. You may find yourself feeling more sensitive and for many of you there may be opportunities to change direction and take a big leap of faith as you look to move forward with excitement! Once again, an opportunity to decide what to do with the time you are given.
If you feel overwhelmed this month and as the Spring Equinox nears please take a few deep breaths and bring your awareness into your heart space. Rest. Pause. Settle. Feel your core essence which is Love. Focus on the moment for that’s what is real! Remember the feeling of calm and love. The Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher, Marcus Aurelius has said “Time is sort of a river of passing events, and strong is the current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight then it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.” Remember that you live a life that is dynamic and ever changing. Live your life to its fullest and enjoy each moment. Although time may be an illusion in the broadest sense it is more real in the moment through your experiences which may be swept away in the river of passing events. Please take the opportunity to remember the special moments of your life and cherish them.
I trust that this transitional time will be supportive of your personal growth and offer you more clarity as you reflect on what to do with the time you are given. I’m sending you lots of love and look forward to hearing from you!
